The Browns announced that TE David Njoku has been designated to return from injured reserve and will begin practicing today.
Njoku has been out since breaking his wrist earlier in the season. The injury was projected to take a month to heal but the Browns elected to give him the full eight weeks by placing him on IR.

This officially opens a three-week window of time for Njoku to practice with the team before Cleveland will need to add him to their active roster. Njoku is eligible to play this week against Miami.
Njoku, 23, is a former first-round pick of the Browns back in 2017. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $9.5 contract and stands to make a base salary of $1.33 million for the 2019 season.
The Browns have a fifth-year option on Njuko to pick up in 2020.
In 2019, Njoku has appeared in two games and caught four passes for 37 yards receiving and one touchdown.
